The Best SPF-Infused Products to Try

On planet skincare, there is no such thing as too much sun protection!

We cannot stress enough on the importance of wearing sunscreen every day. A formula with high SPF not only prevents pigmentation and premature ageing, it also safeguards the skin against cancer and other chronic skin conditions. 

Sunscreens have been notorious for leaving us with greasier-than-usual skin, resulting in clogged pores, breakouts, and blackheads…or a terrible white cast that could have one mistaken for a geisha. But the new-age formulas are designed keeping in mind the various concerns faced by different skin types, making them a treat to wear. 

And while we love trying and testing all the innovative products that are out there—cream, gel, powder, cooling, waterproof, and more—and consider the ‘apply and reapply’ chant sacred, there is another army of SPF-rich products being raised parallelly for that extra kick of sun protection. Now these aren’t substitutes for the real deal, but they come with SPF ranging from 25 to 50, which is beneficial for those who take the damaging consequences of prolonged sun exposure seriously.

From lip balms to day creams and skin tints to foundations, SPF-infused skin and make-up products are just what you need in your arsenal. The Word. Magazine recommends these high-performance formulas skilled at blocking the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays.
